Preparation

For chive crème fraîche:
Combine all ingredients well. Cover and refrigerate overnight before using.

For soup:
Heat butter in saucepan over medium-high. Cook vegetables until soft, 6 to 8 minutes. Add flour and cook until roux forms. Add white wine to deglaze. Add stock and stir in curry powder, then cook 5 minutes. Add cream, bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-high. Cook until slightly thickened, about 45 minutes, stirring often. Add salt and white pepper to taste.

To serve, divide shrimp and crab meat equally into bowls, add soup, and garnish with a dollop of chive crème fraîche and chives. Serves 6.

Aftertaste

At Smørbrød and other Ascent Restaurant Group properties Pizzeria Rustica and TAPAteria, we use farmers’ produce as often as possible. This dish pairs great with Grüner Veltliner wines and dry Rieslings. This is a classic Icelandic dish, known as Humarsúpa, or langoustine soup. It’s enjoyed throughout the Scandinavian peninsula, too.
